Grey's Anatomy fans might be sad to hear this but "McSteamy" is hanging up his scrubs.
The actor recently announced that he will not be returning to the show. Dane plays Dr. Mark Sloan and after much consideration he has decided to leave because he felt it was "the right time in the storyline."
He is not the only cast member to depart for season 9. Chyler Leigh, who plays his on-screen love, and Kim Raver who played Dr. Teddy Altman, have also left the show recently.
But do not fear Grey's fans, the remaining cast has signed on for seasons 9 and 10, so the show will survive at least two more seasons.
We can't wait to see what happens next!
